iPad Mini appears in Apple code as iPad 2 redux

Instapaper creator Marco Arment is reporting that he has discovered references to two new iPads in Instapaper's device stats: iPad2,5 and iPad2,6. He's never seen these devices before, and he's thinking that they might be references to the long-rumored iPad Mini. Of course, he also points out that these entries could have been faked by hackers, but he doesn't think that's likely, and makes the case for the iPad Mini pretty well.

A death-blow to Samsung; a free patent ride for Apple; a surprise window of opportunity for Microsoft: so the $1bn Apple vs. Samsung trial has been summed up as, and more.

Though many of the sales have halted here on the morning after a super-sale weekend, Amazon did have the Kindle DX up for 29% off (that's $110!) and cases, speaker docks, sleeves of all kinds, and more.

And as more rumors pile in, the chances of that device launching sooner rather than later seem awfully high.
